* Italeri 1:72 Huey UH-1C Gunship FINISHED


Recommended Posts

I am not a regular 'viewer' of Britmodeller but recently thought I would like to have a go at some of the GB's on here.

So, 9 days to go and I am going to try to get a kit done which I started for a Vietnam GB last year. I hope you will agree that it is less than 20% complete.

I will finish this in the US Navy - HA(L)-3, Bin Thuy 1970 markings as I know another member is doing the same a/c and I haven't got a Navy Huey in my colllection.

The picture shows the part construction. I tend to break down boxes in order to save on storage and to confuse the wife as to how many kits I have actually got. :winkgrin:

Another update.

Managed to put the grey primer on last night. Just hope the liquid mask does the trick.

Here is the finished article (although looking at the photos one or two places need tidying).

Thanks Ash. :)

Here is a shot of the Vietnam helicopters I have at present. UH-1B, UH-1C, UH-1D, UH-34 and Cayuse.

I still have a UH-1N to do, but want to do it in the colours whilst it served in Nam, which I am finding hard.

Thanks again.

Hi Deacon,

I've just joined and saw this old post. Its probably old news but the USAF used UH-1Ns from late 1970. They were used in Vietnam, some by the 20th Special Operations Squadron, the Green Hornets, and had a wrap around three colour camouflage. There's some more info here (scroll down about halfway) and here.

Cheers
